Hideous Giant Squid Found Off the Coast of Jensen Beach

Ever wonder what a 23-foot-long disgusting giant squid looks like?

Absolutely repulsive is what it looks like.

We got a hold of a photo from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, taken somewhere between the discovery of the squid off the coast of Jensen Beach, its necropsy at a Palm Beach County field office, and its delivery to the Florida Museum of Natural History for preservation.

Check out the photo after the jump:

If that didn't make you vomit, here's what one of the fisherman who caught the squid, Robert Benz, told WPTV:

"It didn't seem it had been dead long. The tentacles were still moving, and it was sticking to you when we got it in."
